Funny how time slips away
Looking at the cracks creeping across my face
I remember the little kid living in here
He'll be living here probably until I'm dead.

Please don't leave me, baby
Please don't leave me yet.

Sitting in a box away from the world out there
A world piled high with boxes just like this
But please don't ever leave me alone in here
Take me out, shake off the dust, shake off the fear.

Please don't leave me, baby
Please don't leave me yet.

If you stay with me
That don't mean we gotta stay the same
If you stay with me
Well baby, you and me we'll change the game

Well I don't know the man that's livin' in my head
'til you reach down and bring the light back in
No, I don't know the man that's living in my head
If I don't know the woman sleeping in my bed.

Remember how we used to kiss, baby
Kiss like it was everything?
Remember how we used to love, baby
Love like it was everything?

You stay with me
That don't mean we have to stay the same
If you stay with me
Well baby, you and me we'll change the game
You stay with me
I'll follow you and we can start again, baby

I only got a minute or two to spare
And I gotta whole damn life to fit in there
So why waste time staring at the T.V. set?
Like I got dreams to kill and people to forget

Remember how we used to dance, baby
Just like it was everything?

You stay with me
And that don't mean we have to stay the same
You stay with me
Baby, you and me can make the change
You stay with me
But that don't mean I wanna stay the same

You stay with me
Well baby, you and me we'll change the game
